Race Notes: The goal of our 5K Scholarship Run is to commemorate their lives and their dedication to the Hamlet of Brentwood. May 4th, 1952 tragedy struck the Brentwood Fire Department. Three members: Charles Elliott, Martin Ames and Andrew Wittman Jr. were trapped in a raging fire near Pilgrim State Hospital. Charles Elliott & Martin Ames died from injuries received in the inferno and because of their unselfish act, Andrew Wittman Jr., although badly burned, survived the ordeal. The fire truck was also destroyed.
